Forestry, Carbon and Climate Change: Investing for the Future

Presented by

Che Charteris, CEO, Craigmore | Nick Tapp, Head of Investor Relations, Craigmore | Brendan Maton, IPE

About this talk

▪ In this webcast Craigmore farming and forestry experts, Che Charteris and Nick Tapp will discuss the economic and environmental benefits of forestry - with New Zealand as a case study. ▪ New Zealand forestry derives revenue from the sale of timber and from carbon credits (NZUs) allocated in recognition of the carbon removed from the atmosphere by a forest as it grows. ▪ New Zealand enjoys a significant competitive advantage in forestry. Growth rates are extremely fast with a 27-year rotation. Faster growth both removes carbon from the atmosphere and delivers mature stands of timber more quickly. ▪ Che Charteris, Craigmore’s CEO, explains that “where cash flows from new forests were previously only received at harvest at around the 27-year mark, the sale of carbon credits allows the Partnership to make distributions to our investors at a much earlier stage. This significant recognition of the importance of forestry as part of addressing climate change has changed the economics of the sector”.
